According to recent news coming from Queensland, Australia - Great Keppel Island will be facing a billion-dollar redevelopment and revival project. When we visited the place in 2012 it was such a quiet place, almost deserted, following the closure of the Island's resort back in 2008. It will be interesting to see how this story develops.
